or cars. president obama and lawmakers are cautiously optimistic about a budget deal. but nancy pelosi says it must include tax hikes for the wealthy. we have the latest. >> reporter: shannon, the house minority leader, nancy pelosi, sits at the negotiates ing table with the leaders, trying to steer the country away from the fiscal cliff. she says he will not accept a deal that does not include tax rate increases for the wealthiest americans. but she also said she thinks negotiators have enough of a sense of urgenc tow get a deal done by the middle of december. >> we are all grownups. we have a responsibility to the american people. the elements for an agreement are there. time is of the essence, the quicker we do tthe more confidence we instill, the better it is for the economy and the american people. >> reporter: republicans, too, have expressed optimism that the fiscal cliff can be avoided and are open to signing legislation that includes new sources of revenue. but the president wants to raise most of that new money with $1.6 trillion over a decade. republicans are not likely to g
into the holiday week. congresswoman nancy pelosi made some headlines about this comment about tax hikes for the wealthiest americans. >> would you accept a deal that does not include tax increase s for wealthy we have seen some capping income rates for high income earners -- is that acceptable at all? >> no. >> not at all? >> no, the president made it clear that there is not enough resources and what you have just described is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. >> okay. hogan, some of the gop are open to higher taxes for the top earners and senator mitch mcconnell came out after the talks last week, and took the microphone with pelosi and with reid and boehner at the side saying that revenue is on the table, but when the talks ramp back up after thanksgiving, is this an issue to be real negotiation or dig-in time? >> i hope it is time for a negotiation. look, if there is one thing that we learned from the president's campaign, he promised to raise taxes on the wealthy. and here is a news flash to the republicans out there, elections have consequences, and that is what h
, former communications director for nancy pelosi, and mark mckinnon, distributor to the daily beast. what about the need for prayer, brendan? you've been through budget negotiations and saw the democratic leader nancy pelosi said over the weekend that there is no give on the, you know, fundamental demand about some adjustment on tax rates. >> right. >> top rates, that you can't get enough by capping deductions to make up what you need to get some balance going forward. what about prayer? is that going to be helpful? >> prayer is always helpful and so is trying to work together in a constructive way. i think the meeting the leaders had at the white house with president obama last week, both sides came out and said we have to get something done. i am optimistic. there's a lot of tough issues that have to be worked out but i think they can do it. >> mark, all joking aside, are you as optimistic? i read between the lines and you see speaker boehner clearly wants a deal and, perhaps, has more leverage now with the house republican caucus, but once you get down to the actual negotiations, there
, and meeting with this people provides great theater for that public. >> didn't nancy pelosi say today they would have milestones along the way and that there might be miniature goals as we get to the end? >> yes. >> how do you see that playing out? >> well, i think that this, again -- gwen: is this part of the public? >> this is a sign they have to get this done. there is nobody right now on either side of the aisle who wants to see this happen. i think what you're seeing when harry reid, for instance, is standing there and practically promising that we're going to get a deal before december 31, he stood up there and said that today. they mean business. >> right. >> there are lots of pieces to this. i think what they agreed to today is divide into pieces. how do we deal with the end of the year problem on spending, what do we do about a longer term deficit thing. they're trying to set up a framework to get it done. gwen: the sequester is what they're going to talk about down the road? >> they're probably going to find a settlement for this year, whether they do $100 billion down payme
when you saw nancy pelosi out there. you saw john boehner out there saying we are hopeful we can get a deal done. and the market had a positive reaction to that. yet it lost that upside throughout the day, teetered back and forth between positive and negative territory. finally, closing the day out positive, so perhaps that suggests that maybe we are a little bit closer. but here's the thing, randi, they've got to get something done. they've got to solve this issue. because if not, the consequences are severe. >> but you listen to some people, and they suggest that fears of fallen off the cliff are overblown. what are the real consequences here? >> the real consequences are another recession. i mean, i can tell you every ceo that i'm talking to right now says i'm not making major decisions. i'm waiting. i'm standing by the sidelines. i can't hire a lot of people, i can't invest in a lot of infrastructure because i don't know what the landscape is going to be in the next 45 days. i don't know what the landscape is going to be in the next three months. so there's a lot of holdup. now,
cliff issue. we have new comments from nancy pelosi on the fiscal cliff today. let's listen to that. >> would you accept a deal that does not include tax rate increases for the wealthy. we have seen a possible compromise that would leave rates the same but cap deductions for top earners? >> no. the president made it clear there are not enough -- what you described is a formula and a blueprint for hampering our future. >> what do you think? does this mean a deal will not get done? >> i think there is desire on both sides to get a deal done. that doesn't mean we will see one. both sides are taken the election to mean that the american people want action. the president has taken it to mean the american people endorsed his so-called balanced approach to balancing the budget. and we saw spirited koopg with the leaders coming out after the meetening a now they mr. get down to the details where to make cuts and revenue increases and can do you do it by just closing loopholes, is that enough or do you have to talk about tax rates in particular think tax rating for the wealthy. that's is whe
's a fantastic achievement senate and nancy pelosi was totally right to congratulate that. but what was interesting she pointed out we had to go further. >> in "park lane" you go back to world war i. toll us about that. >> that was a seminal moment of change for women's rights. there was the suffrage -- the women's suffrage campaign was really reaching the height. they were burning down buildings, chaining themselves to railings. one went and slashed a painting, but when the war came this was the real moment in which came into their open own because the men went off to fight and the women stepped into men's jobs. this was tremendously empowering for them. they were driving ambulances at the front, some were even going into the trenches and administering care. >> you said there was somewhat of a sexual revolution. >> there was. i feel a sexual revolution is very emancipating for women. but what happens, the soldiers were fighting in france, they were so close they could get to england for a week or two and the duty to remain a virgin until you got married became outweighed to give ev
? >> if the president had a mandate, nancy pelosi would be the speaker of the house. >> the same question i put to gene sperling. how confident are you as these first face-to-face negotiations began, there will be a deal that you and your colleagues can support? >> very confident. there is an opportunity the president has to lead the country in a way that he wanted to back in 2008. there is a benefit to limited government. the president did not have it in 2009 when there was an expectation. listen, this move forward with the agenda. now, there is a restraining influence. i think there is an obscenity for both of these men, the state senate, their dispositions to come up with a remedy to get it done. >> would be better if it was just the two of them? >> are you stringing me out? >> well, they both have temperaments that can get to yes and that is a good thing in leaders. >> thank you for joining us. >> great, thank you. one of the players in these negotiations. thank you for that republican perspective.

until the last day of september, and house minority leader nancy pelosi said the goal is to get it done before christmas. we should be so lucky. >> we should be so lucky. holidays are coming up. it is a beautiful back grdrop b you look a little chilly. >> it is a little cold. >> brianna keilar, thank you. >>> what do fiscal cliff talks mean for your money? for your 401(k)? wall street investors might get nervous if talks aren't wrapped up quickly. i want to bring in time magazine's assistant managing editor, rana faruhar. you say some key people are worried next about what is coming up with stocks and bonds, why is that? >> a lot of the top investors in country see that the market has been down. there are major worries still about the fiscal cliff. i wish i could be as optimistic as some, but frankly i'm becoming a little bit worried. i think the issue of tax hikes for the rich in particular is going to be very politically contentious and there are worries we may not make that interviewer deadline and, in fact, if we go over it and stay over it for a few months, we could see the u.s. go
nancy pelosi is on stage with all of these great women. like i mentioned earlier ageism is the one ism that liberals and conservatives are guilty of. luke, this is what you did. let's play it. >> i guess -- oh, you've always asked that question except to mitch mcconnell. >> he missed the question. joan what happened there was luke russert got to ask a question during speaker -- former speaker pelosi's press conference yesterday with all of the democratic-elected officials on stage. and he asked about her age and about the fact that she's hanging on to the leadership position and isn't that depriving someone younger of getting it. and former speaker pelosi astutely pointed out that he would never ask that question of mitch mcconnell and then she said this. >> let's, for a moment, honor it as a legitimate question. although it is quite offensive but you don't realize that, i guess. the fact is -- the fact is that everything that i have done in my almost -- i guess decade now of leadership is to elect younge
